Artesa Elements Red Blend 2006 750ml

Artesa Elements Red Blend

Whether ita s lush, forward fruit; a tinge of earthy richness; or a dash of wild herb or spice, each appellation, vineyard and varietal contributes to the layers of aroma and flavor that sets Elements apart. Shaped first by nature, then forged by the winemakera s blending choices, Elements wines are multi-faceted and complex, a testament to what can happen when many become one.

This wine is brimming with lively black currant, raspberry and blueberry enveloped in a spicy bouquet of cinnamon, clove, vanilla, nutmeg and faint hints of smoked meat. The flavor is true to the aromas and the texture is silky and supple. This wonderful blend of fruit, spice and silk dances and lingers in your mouth. The acid balance and slight dryness of the tannin on the finish indicate that this wine has the structure to age gracefully for several years.

Following hand-harvesting, the grapes were de-stemmed and gently split open. Full extraction of berry flavors was accomplished through a combination of punching down the cap and gentle pumpover irrigation. Post-fermentation extended maceration was used to enhance body and structure. The wine was then pressed directly to barrel and underwent malolactic fermentation. It aged in French oak for 24 months and was racked four times during 18 months of aging to mature the wine.
